New innovations emerge naturally in the area, in close cooperation between the parties and companies. “Elektroniikkatie (=Electronics Avenue) is a good address for us and Technopolis Oyj a great landlord. Being in the heart of the ICT cluster, including VTT and the University of Oulu, will be bring an extra twist for our operation both in the short and long term,” comments Lauri Antila, VP for Marketing and Business Development.
